There are direct rail links between Lancaster and London, Birmingham, Leeds, Manchester, Oxford and major cities in Scotland. The X1 bus service runs between the Railway Station and the University every 20 minutes Mon - Sat daytimes and hourly on Sunday afternoons and evenings. The journey takes approximately 15 minutes.
Leave the M6 motorway at junction 33 and take the A6 north towards Lancaster.
Turn right at the third set of traffic lights on the A6 into the University main drive. Take the first exit left from the roundabout at the top of the main drive, then the first avenue on your right. This brings you to the Reception Lodge where security staff will direct you to your destination on campus.
Please see the campus map above for car parking locations.
From Manchester International Airport take the M56 motorway at junction 5 and join the M6 motorway at junction 20 (north). Follow the directions 'By Car'. An hourly rail link runs between the airport and Lancaster.
The bus station is situated on Damside Street. Buses (services 2, 2A, 3 and 4) leave regularly for the University every five minutes on weekdays and most services also stop at Common Garden Street. The journey takes approximately 20 minutes. Additionally, the X1 bus service runs every 20 minutes between the Railway Station and the University (hourly on Sunday afternoons and evenings) - this service does not route via the main bus station but does have various pick-up points through the city centre.
